Meet Trooper, an 8-10 month old male terrier/Labrador mix who was rescued near a hunting camp and was literally skin and bones.

Trooper has a smooth rusty brown coat and is now weighing 51 pounds, up about 15 pounds already!

Trooper is very sweet and loving. He is good with other dogs and minds very well. He's very gentle with children, but because of his size, Humane Society of West Alabama thinks he'd do better in a home with children ages 8 and over. He will require a fenced in yard, and a home visit will be done to verify.

Trooper is a puppy still, so he will need structure and training to help him develop into a well-mannered adult dog. He is still a little chewy and has that fun puppy energy!

This sweet boy is crate trained, almost house trained, and is up to date on his vet care, is neutered, and heart worm negative.

Please call 205-554-0011, or visit to request an appointment to meet Trooper and to check his availability.
